Jan’s Glass by the Sea is having its grand opening March 9 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

This glass art gallery, studio and learning centre is at 2940 Comox Rd. in the architectural wonder of a house with the timber frame fence — a work in progress. Please excuse our entry stairs.

Come by to be wowed and excited by the wonderful ambience and glass art on display and in the floors.

Owner Jan Lindstrom has been creating and teaching glasswork since 1980 and is still captivated by this extraordinary art form. You will get a sneak preview of the next stained glass window being created for the Comox Valley Airport, and a reproduction of the Dove window at the Vatican.

There are examples of a relatively new glass mosaic technique that you could learn without any prior experience. Try a glass-cutting tool that requires no knowledge for mosaic work.

Workshop info sheets, are available so you can read up on what she offers for you to learn.

Former students? There is great refresher weekend workshop to get you back into the groove. Studio space and tool use are available for those who need them.
